Training Description

Implicit bias is present in society as well as the social services field. It’s important that those who support system-involved youth understand implicit bias and the ways it shows up and impacts recommendations, outcomes, and the ability to build relationships with system-involved youth and young adults. This training will provide an overview of ways implicit bias is present in social services, how it impacts system-involved youth and young adults and what we can do to address implicit bias when it shows up.

Learning Objectives

· Participants will be able to identify at least 1 example of implicit bias in social services.

· Participants will be able to identify at least 1 way implicit bias impacts system-involved youth and young adults.

· Participants will be able to identify at least 1 strategy to intervene when implicit bias is recognized within efforts to support system involved youth.
